Actually, it’s been door #3 for a while. It must be an article from the Onion or MAD Magazine with Alfred E. Obama saying “What, me govern?” But unfortunately this is real life with a I don’t know what to call it at the Helm. Most probably Capt. Smith from the TITANIC.
At this point where BO said the following, you would expect that person to self-combust. What the HELL does he think he should have been doing for the last 1520+ days. All we do know is it WASN’T GOVERNING, it was a perpetual Blame Game, Golf, Campaign, and Vacation. All this is where he let others run on auto-pilot. It’s why we’re in this DAMN Mess. NO FREAKIN’ GOVERNANCE.
Obama Says He’ll Have To Start Governing At Some Point
What is still amazing to me is how Washington is trying to convince the American people that spending cuts are bad. What’s even more amazing is that the alleged “cuts” that they are talking about aren’t real cuts in the first place. With that in mind Barack Obama tempted Republicans again on Monday with compromise in order to avoid what he calls “big spending cuts” which are due to take effect at the end of this week. “At some point,” he said, he’ll have to do some governing and stop manufacturing crisis after crisis.
Obama told a meeting of the National Governors Association at the White House,”There are always going to be some areas where we have genuine disagreement … but there are more areas where we can do a lot more cooperating than we have seen in the past several years. To do that, though, this town has to get past its obsession with focusing on the next election instead of the next generation.”
“All of us are elected officials,” he said. “All of us are concerned about our politics, both in our own party’s as well as the other party’s. But at some point, we’ve got to do some governing. And certainly what we can’t do is keep careening from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis. As I said in the State of the Union, the American people have worked hard and long to dig themselves out of one crisis; they don’t need us creating another one. And unfortunately, that’s what we’ve been seeing too much out there.”
At some point we’ve got to do some governing? Hello? You are supposed to be the national governor! At some point a national governor needs to govern. Let me ask, what has Barack Obama been doing the past four years? I’ll give you a hint. It hasn’t been governing. It’s been organizing and campaigning.
